“It’s not the heat, but the humidity!” And then it’s the storms.551542_844040809007449_1531987492326434278_n The National Weather Service in Des Moines reports Saturday will be hot and humid, with the potential for severe weather.With High temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90’s Saturday, and Dewpoint values in the low to mid-70’s, the Heat index (or, how it feels) will be in the mid- to upper 90’s, with a few places reaching 100 degrees.

The heat and humidity will be most prevalent along and south of Interstate 80, with the warmest temperatures off to the south. There is also a threat of severe weather Saturday, with a “marginal” risk for strong storms weather over much of the KJAN listening area, and a slight risk of severe storms over parts of central Iowa, and most of the eastern half of the State. The primary threats Saturday afternoon and evening include large hail, damaging winds, and the possibility of tornadoes.

The Weather Service says you need to prepare for this heat spell, by making sure air conditioning works, drink plenty of water, never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles, stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.
